FYI is…

A life changing journey to your happiest and most fulfilled self! The information you learn in this course is like receiving a personal GPS System to help guide you to create the life you really want.

Join Allyn Cioban, as she shares her passion for divine spiritual wisdom and the ancient yogic sciences as tools to achieve the life, love, career, health, and joyful connected-ness you dream of.

FYI is a prerequisite for the Naam Level 1 Teachers Training (RISE, TEACH, SHINE). However, you don’t have to want to teach to enjoy this course and improve your life experience!

FYI Course

We begin by asking:

  • What if we individuals came with manuals, books of deep wisdom about our soul’s nature, our inner truths, and our purpose on this earth?

  • What if we could examine and understand our inner strengths and weaknesses, the root causes of how and why we get stuck in our lives, and find ways to shift, move forward, and achieve true physical, mental and spiritual health and happiness?

  • What if we could discover personal, customized strategies and useful techniques for finding love, achieving career success, and self-healing?

The FYI course will introduce you to the Seven Creative Planets and your personal birth chart. We will examine how planetary influences can impact your health, career, and love relationships. We'll look at your challenges, habits, and patterns that are holding you back. You will learn how to harness the tools of Naam – yoga, movement, meditation, sound therapy, chanting, mantras, and mudras - to help you secure enduring health, happiness, love, and light across all aspects of your life.

Through the course, you will develop a daily mediation practice. You will also practice and gain an understanding of the healing power of breath, pranayam. You will learn practical tips and tools to improve your timing and communication in both personal and professional life. This is a beautiful and profound journey of discovery, a road map for this lifetime and beyond. If you are looking for answers, the FYI course will help you find them. 


This FYI Course takes place April 5-10, 2019, and is set up for easy upgrade to create your own personal Urban Retreat. During learning breaks, schedule a Harmonyum Healing Session, Aromatherapy Massage, Naamflexology Session, or even a Holistic Kabbalistic Counseling Session with Lemia Astarabadi, Joshua Bowser, or with Allyn. Or, you can simply stroll along the famous Santa Monica Beach and enjoy the natural beauty of the Southern California coastline.

Allyn Cioban

Moved to share a path of inner healing that worked wonders for herself, Allyn became a yoga teacher. With ten years of competitive gymnastics, fourteen years of group exercise instruction and personal training, and 500+ hours training in Vinyasa, SmartFLOW, Restorative, and Yin yoga, Allyn expertly teaches postural alignment and breath control. Her personal practice, and therefore her teaching, evolved immensely under the tutelage of Spiritual Master and Naam Yoga Founder, Dr. Joseph Michael Levry. Allyn loves to share the sacred and healing practices of Naam and Divine Spiritual Wisdom, as a Level 1 & 2 Naam Teacher, a certified Trainer of the FYI Naam Lifestyle Course and The Naam 5, and as a Harmonyum Practitioner. Additionally, Allyn has taught a course she developed on consciousness for eleven years, Your Essential Self (YES). She believes wholeheartedly that through self-inquiry one is lead to self-awareness, which can change everything! It opens you up to self-acceptance, self-appreciation, and self-love. From there you have the ability to choose to love unconditionally – yourself and others. Today Allyn is dedicated to teaching you how to heal spiritually, emotionally and physically. She leads workshops, trainings, retreats, healing circles, and private sessions globally for individuals, groups, companies, schools, and students of all ages and ability levels.
